Balenciaga came out with a $9,000 seven-layer coat as part of the label's autumn/winter collection. According to Matches Fashion, it's made of "plaid shirts, jersey hoodies, and technical fleeces, featuring cuffed sleeves, two front patch pockets, a drawstring hood and a coordinating hem."
People on Twitter immediately thought of Joey Tribbiani's coat from an episode of Friends, and the side-by-side comparisons commenced.
Ah yes, the episode where Joey put on Chandler's entire wardrobe, and came out with this masterpiece.
Some were confused when they realized that this was NOT Joey, and that it WAS a $9,000 Balenciaga jacket.
Fashion is cyclical, and @DxMatilla noted that Joey was "frickin' ahead of his time."
And this twitter user pointed out that this is easily remakeable at your local thrift store.
What do you guys think? Is this a plain knockoff or is it fashionable?
